Recent Charleston reviews

  • Wonderful apartment in great location!

    "Four of us rented this apartment for 3 nights. What a beautiful apartment with everything you need. The apartment is huge. The location could not have been better, within walking distance of everything, great restaurants, great shops everything. Was nice to have a parking spot for our car which made things easy. Would highly recommend as it was so nice to have the extra space and not stay in a sterile hotel room."

  • Not disappointed!

    "After reading all the reviews, we rented this place for the whole month of February 2015. It was just about perfect for us. The location is absolutely great--2 1/2 blocks from the Market and its free trolley stop, great restaurants and shopping and history. An excellent Harris-Teeter grocery store is just a block away. The included designated parking space on-site is a tremendous plus. The kitchen has everything needed for in-home cooking. The living room is large and comfortable with a full-size pull out couch, wide-screen cable tv and bright beachy decor. The bedroom is very large with plenty of drawer space, walk-in closet and linen closet. The queen-size bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was more than adequate but could use some updating. The staff were very responsive to the few questions or issues that came up. The only cons were minor--the exterior of the building is not all that impressive, the interior hallways are plain and a little dreary but clean and the parking space painted numbers are hard to see. Also the stools at the breakfast bar were too short for us to eat there comfortably (but we ate out most of the time!). We highly recommend this location."

  • Perfect downtown hideaway at a great price!

    "My wife and I stayed in this charming carriage house for five weeks upon relocating to Charleston area and while looking for a permanent residence. This property is within walking distance to most all of downtown Charleston and has one off-street parking place. There's also some unregulated parking on the street which was a big plus for us due to having two cars. The property was quiet, cozy, and better than advertised. David and Victoria were very accommodating hosts and even hooked me up with an extension cord so I could charge my plugin hybrid vehicle. We would have stayed another month if the property had been available."

  • Perfect for families!

    "We stayed at this lovely condo over the holidays and found it had everything we needed. We have two young children and were thrilled to find a pack and play as well as a highchair. The kitchen also has everything you need to make great meals and the living room area includes games and a large TV. The location is also ideal, close to many popular sights and restaurants. Recommend!"
